    You can do so in settings, and click on the Start Button tab, and select the one you wanted.

    If no one can help at this point, can you system restore to a point before you started trying to add back the start menu button back. Then, start over after you have satisfied yourself that the program you select will do what you want. Another (easy to use) option is StarDock Start8.
